This, plus some syntactic sugar so I could easily specify values of 
these types in my source code, would do the trick.
Preferrably in such a way that I can use the C code verbatim: at the 
moment I don't have to understand what the C code does, whether it uses 
other constants, strings, expressions, etc.
